I really enjoy music, but I have to admit, my favorite musical “tool” is the human voice. I love the sound of a good singer. In fact, I think all too often, musical instruments get it the way of a good sing. This makes for some unfortunate truths:
1) I enjoy watching American Idol. Not the drama, not the auditions, but the actual talented singers.
2) I tend to like “girly” music.
3) While I’m very flexible in what I consider good singing, I am very critical of bad singing. (I’m not mean about it, I just notice and it’s like nails on a chalkboard)
So what’s your favorite instrument?

Saxaphone, hands down. There’s just nothing else like it. 🙂
I agree with singing. I personally love to sing, but I also love the guitar (which I play) and the piano (not so much me, but when someone’s a really good pianist). 🙂
While the sax is good, and the voice is the original instrument, I’m a big fan of the bass, both upright and electric guitar varieties.
I can’t stand to watch AI, or any of the many pretenders, for the very reason you do watch – the singers. They are almost all like nails on chalkboard for me.
